Nicki Minaj will kick off the year 2015 by showing off her tongue! The "Anaconda" singer has been featured on the cover page of Rolling Stone magazine and in one of her pictures, she is showing off her tongue just like singer Miley Cyrus. The rapper calls herself a "grown-a-- f--king woman" and wears a plunging white vest for the shot that reveals her ample cleavage. Celebrity photographer Terry Richardson, who has clicked Miley Cyrus' controversial pictures in past, shot Nicki for the cover of the magazine. Check it out here.

The 32-year-old rapper has been described as "Mad Genius, Manic Diva" by Rolling Stone. The magazine also gave a ranking of 4 out of 5 to Nicki's new album, "The Pinkprint." The album gives an insight into Nicki's personal life. The actress told the magazine that it was one of her goals to give her fans a glimpse of her personal life as she believes it is "something I've kept very private." The singer said she found it very hard to even sleep alone and express her innermost desires initially but later discovered that she has no reason to hide it.

The singer called herself a "vulnerable woman" and said she was proud of it. The singer was in news recently when she released a b-tt-revealing picture of herself to promote her single "Anaconda." Nicki says she is proud to show off her body. "With a video like 'Anaconda,' I'm a grown-a-- f--king woman! I stand for girls wanting to be sexy and dance, but also having a strong sense of themselves," Nicki is quoted as saying by the magazine.

"If you got a big ol' b-tt? Shake it! Who cares?," added Nicki. The rapper also talks about the time when she got pregnant as a teenager. Nicki thought she was "going to die" when she discovered she was carrying a baby but she chose to have an abortion at that time as she felt it was the "right choice." The decision of aborting her baby haunted Nicki "all her life." The singer first rapped about her teenage pregnancy in a mixtape called "Autobiography" and did not expect that many people would hear it back then. Now she is more confident to talk about it. Nicki Minaj's Rolling Stone issue will be released on Friday, Jan 2, 2015.
